As we've seen all too often the past few years, scandals and sketchy hirings get a lot of attention for a few weeks, or even a month. But by the time football season 2013 rolled around, all ESPN would be talking about is the "steal-of-a-deal" Kentucky got in order to have a legitimate football coach take over a football program in a legitimate conference.
I love Joker. He is a standup guy that represents the program with class and integrity. However, you would have to completely have your head buried in the sand to think that Barnhart isn't at least considering the idea. Especially since Petrino was spotted in Nicholasville just over a month ago.
